From the Houstonian:
Students who may be wondering what the Lowman Student Center will look like when the construction is done now have the opportunity to see its progression. The Lowman Student Center Office is offering tours of the facility to interested students and organizations, according to Keith Jenkins, associate dean of Student Life.
Jenkins said students should expect to see a lot more space in the renovated LSC.
"We've gained a lot of square footage in the building," he said. "Student organizations will have a room just to themselves to go and do work. We've never had that. We'll have a nice ballroom (where the swimming pool used to be). They'll see a Barnes and Nobles that's gong to be double the size it's ever been."
The renovation, which began in December 2000, is running on time, and the LSC should be fully operational by the fall, Jenkins said.
"It's coming along great. I would say we're probably about 85 to 88 percent complete," he said. "The contractors could be out within the next couple of months."
